Congratulations to Alexis Neis!

The Alliance for Young Artists & Writers, the nonprofit organization that presents the Scholastic Art &
Writing Awards, presented Alexis with the following National Medal:
Student: Alexis Neis; Title: Mean and Colorful; Award: Silver Medal; Category: Sculpture
Nearly 340,000 works of art and writing were submitted to the 2019 Scholastic Awards. Her work was selected by
some of the foremost leaders in the visual and literary arts for excellence in originality, technical skill, and
the emergence of a personal voice or vision. Receiving a National Medal places her within the
top 1% of all submissions!
Since 1923, the Awards have celebrated teen artists and writers from across the country. Alexis is
now a part of that legacy, joining the ranks of celebrated alumni like artists Andy Warhol, Robert Indiana,
and Kay WalkingStick; writers Sylvia Plath, Truman Capote, and Joyce Carol Oates; and filmmakers Lena
Dunham and Ken Burns.
